Back by popular demand! The Nine-to-Five Mountain Bike Team Relay
event will take place from Dirtopia’s home base at Delvera farm on the public holiday -Monday, 25 September 2017
. The event started in 2008 and creates a social atmosphere at the start/finish and a 7km lap that riders can ride for the full 8 hours (or not) to see how many laps they can do in the day.
Solo riders, teams of two and teams of 4 riders can bring support crew to help them win the several categories.
Normal entry costs
starts from R200 per rider to R300 per rider, depending on the category with discount to Amarider members. Entries close on Thursday, 21 September 2017.
It is not necessary for team members to ride in sequence and one team member can do as many consecutive laps as they like. There should however not be more than a four lap difference between the rider with the most laps and the rider with the least number of laps at the end of the event.
The route is easy enough for riders across all levels and fast laps will ensure lots of activity in the transition area. This is a very social event with friends and family supporting the riders and enjoying the facilities at this beautiful winelands venue.
Only pre-entries are taken so get your teams together – categories include: Open, Mixed and Junior.
A percentage of the entry fee will go towards the Simonsberg Conservancy for permits.
Spectators are welcome to relax on the lawn or enjoy a wine or olive tasting or a leisurely hike on one of Delvera’s superb hiking trails. There is a lot of entertainment on the farm for kids like go-karts, games & soft play toys to name a few.
At the start/finish will be Powerade for the riders. There are prizes to be won from sponsors like Giant, Cape Storm, Falke and wine of the Simonsberg farms.
Timing will be done by Amarider Trail Tag that gives live results. Dirtopia Café will have braai specials and serve breakfast & lunch all day.
